result needs prostates as the water reaches the internet goes and that's brenda's up inundating many many villages downstream in the correspondence on a phone the car brings up to date on camera thank you. in my here in germany chancellor angela merkel has held talks with russian president vladimir putin the crises in both area and ukraine and a key joint energy projects were high on the agenda and he has released no statement after the talks but ahead of the may saying they both indicated a willingness to compromise on issues that have soured relations between the one trees in recent years emphasize russia's importance of the global power appears and called on europe to help rebuild war torn syria it was the two leaders in fact influencing in three months. and he deputy political correspondent time and young who father report joins me in studio now well confinement so do you think that the talks were a sign that there is an improvement in relations between germany and russia well
1:06 pm
a little bit anglo american says that she wants good relations with russia and vladimir putin as you saw him the other day about having a permanent dialogue. but of course contacts have dropped off a lot since two thousand and fourteen when russia annexed crimea and so i think in a world in particular in which president trump has to change the calculus of a lot of foreign policy issues you know maybe russia and germany feel the need for talkies greater than ever so also one of the things that was proposing was for europe to open its wallace and help rebuild syria do you think he's going to get his wish yeah i mean that to me putin was saying yesterday you know we construction of syria is the next phase and of course the fighting there hasn't been fully stopped yet so. he was hinting that it seemed europe's interest to play op he was even talking about the possibility that syrian refugees could start to return back home from europe as well as from the middle eastern countries e.g.

1:08 pm
partner for europe donald trump by the way says it would make germany totally dependent on russia so he's critical of it but merkel says that what she wants is russia to agree that even with nord stream two russian gas would continue to flow through ukraine as a transit country because that's the strategic relationship there putin was very skeptical he said any such deal would have to make economic sense and his spokesman after these talks last night was quoted saying you know the russia was thinking of taking measures against the countries that were trying to block the north stream project so there's a lot of differences on that key energy relationship as well plenty of discussion very little. thank you very much back to some of the other stories making news around the world. italian rescuers have ended their search for survivors from the genoa bridge collapse if fishel death toll now stands at forty three after three more bodies were on covert over nice
